Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort, Stylish I bought these a month ago, and they effortlessly propelled me up Bowenvale track and back in a jiffy. Great casual and classy day hike boot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart and practical Especially happy with the consistent sizing of Kathmandu footwear, so I can be confident that any replacement pair will be a good fit straight away. Have 'walked' my way through 2 pairs of trainers over recent years as my daily all-purpose shoe, and was very pleased to find my recent change to a Federate boot did not need any breaking-in or change of pace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and comfortable I bought these recently and found them to be comfortable from the moment I put them on. They are strong but soft. Great styling and a real versatile colour.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So comfortable from the first wearing Saw them online and really liked them, stylish and really comfortable. I have not tried them off the pavement as not waterproof so suspect too much rough stuff would quickly spoil their looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and warm Bought this boot before COVID. Have been using it almost daily indoor, haven’t have the chance to use for outdoor activities. It is very comfortable and keep the feet warm. Not noisy when walking on timber floors. Very important if you are an early person as you don’t wake partner. I like the colour too, very good match with the green Kathmandu pants

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable and warm I bought these just before a trip to Germany, Switzerland and Turkey in winter. Thought I needed something warmer. These boots were perfect- so warm, my feet were never cold, and the ankle height meant the gap to the thermals was minimal. And so comfortable, from the first day

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for urban exploring Bought these while at home in Christchurch 3 weeks ago. Been wearing them almost continuously since. Very comfortable. They are not a hard out hiking boot to take on the Kokoda trail but ideal for wandering around urban areas

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome boot I bought these 5 months ago and have worn them almost everyday and everywhere. Super comfy and look great. I love these things. Whilst not really a hiking boot I have worn them on a couple of small easy hikes and no problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfortable & light I brought these as a travel boot as they do not look too hikie when boarding flights or entering restaurants. Happy with the fit, weight and comfort.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable Federate sole wears quickly While the Federate boot is comfortable, the soles wear quickly. At 7 months old heel cup fabric is also tearing. Even rotating the boots after each wear I don’t believe boots will survive 12 months which is a pity.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Disappointed I bought these boots a month and a half ago - just through normal wear, I am getting moist spots on the top of the toe box. The moisture comes from the inside of the boots (sweat from my feet) and is clearly visible on the outside. I went into a store to complain, and was told there is nothing that could be done. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Comfortable and Well Built Great Boots! Perfect! Yes I would recommend these boots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable with thin or thick socks. Good walking downhill on loose gravel. The tongue could be a bit less bulky

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected Putting them on is like putting on an old pair of favourites. Wear them all day and so comfortable. Lightweight yet sturdy for comfort and confidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really comfortable for all day urban exploring. I bought these boots to take as my second pair of hiking boots on a recent trip to Bhutan... my usual hiking boots got used when we were climbing some of the harder tracks (up to temples and alike) but these boots were perfect for some of the more urban exploring. Lightweight and easy to maintain but also sturdy enough to make sure I did not roll an ankle in some of the more gnarly pathways and tracks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy with comfort Worn a few times and am finding them exactly what I wanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-round boot Been desperately searching for replacement for my last (5th) pair of classic Khatmandu Edmond boots. At last these fit the bill. Leather conforms itself to my poorly shaped feet, don't upset my knee replacement, super comfortable for bush and track walking. Look good around town. One pair of footwear to cover all occasions when travelling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New seasons creation When setting out to develop these boots we wanted to create an iconic piece with heritage in the outdoors but with an urban styling By taking a vibram trail running sole and midsole unit and merging it with a leather upper we have created a light weight boot that delivers on its design brief. I recently wore these on a trip to the USA and where perfect for travelling in but also comfortable enough for all day wear walking around Portland but still smart enough to wear out in the evening.
